    I may have to replace my phone. I wanted to know if there was any way I could back up all my user settings and such. I have personalized almost all the apps and the phone and I am not looking forward to doing it again.
    TIA

    Ya, and also apps that store data such as maps/addresses, dolphin browser favorites, notes app....ect.

    I know there are 3rd party backup apps, but isnt there a function within Android to do this?

    Backup to several areas. Certainly send your contacts to Backup Assistant, but I use MY BackUP as well.

    It does pretty well, but not 100%.

    Some settings and configs will have to be reset.

    I went from the Droid 1 to the X. I backed up all data and Apps from the D1 to my SD card with My Backup.

    Then when the X arrived, after activating it, I reinstalled My Backup from the market, then did a full restore from the D1 SD card.

    This worked pretty well. Just a little cleaning up after that.

    Good Luck
